We talk a lot about TruckingOffice’s extras. We spend a lot of time talking about IFTA and about truck maintenance. But the core of TruckingOffice is to be an easy trucking invoicing program. After all, if we can’t do that, nothing else matters.
Easy Trucking Invoicing Program
When you’re looking for a good invoicing program for your trucking business, it’s got to do the heavy lifting for you.
Routing: Once you get the order for the load, you’ve got to get the best possible routing. Depending on Google Maps isn’t always a great choice if your load is over-sized or over weight. You’ve got to be aware of low bridges and weight limits. You’ll get a better routing from PC*Miler.
Dispatching: Getting the details right in a simple process shouldn’t be hard – but have you seen some of the other trucking invoicing programs out there? “Simple” doesn’t describe it. You’ll have to repeat the data for repeat customers. The data entry alone takes a long time. And then you have to do it again and again.
Invoice creation: Does the invoice creation process allow you to add a Remit to option? Do you have to re-enter the shipper’s name and address even if this is the 100th load you’ve hauled for them? Can you enter extra expenses that the shipper agreed to pay, such as fuel fees or detention fees?
When we work on our own, there’s a lot of redundant work that we get to do. The same shipper, same address – all has to be retyped. And if you have a typo in the address or the name of the person who’s going to authorize your payment – how long is it going to take for you to notice? How long until you get paid?
The Benefits to You
For many of the young who are just joining the trucking industry, having a computer to handle the paperwork isn’t new – it’s expected. There must be a way to have these tasks automated, they think. An easy trucking invoicing program isn’t optional for them. It’s simply finding one that works.
“We want an app.”
Yes, we hear that a lot. We don’t have an app for a lot of reasons. The most important reason is your data is too important to keep on your phone. What happens if you lose your phone? By using a web-based system, we allow you to
